The spectacular downhill par four 12th at Bellingham is named Dormouse. This 347-yard signature hole heads down into the valley from an elevated tee and a long iron is all that’s required to find a generous landing area bordered by trees and a penalty area to the left. The downhill approach must be well struck to carry the burn at the front of a small putting surface, while not carrying too far into the trees at the back of the green. A stunning piece of ground for a golf hole.
